Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation

  • To improve the ability of research libraries to serve the needs of scholarship in the humanities and the performing arts, and to help make their resources more widely accessible to scholars and the general public.
  • To promote cooperative cataloging projects, with an emphasis on access to archival, manuscript, and other unique sources; some elements of interpretation and exhibition; scholarly library publications; bibliographical and publishing projects of interest to research libraries; and collection-level preservation/conservation work and research.
  • Small-scale digitizing is eligible for support when the process is part of a clearly defined and timely scholarly project that incorporates recognized standards for metadata production, for preservation, and for distribution. The Foundation does not support massive digitizing projects of a general nature.
  • The geographical concentration is primarily but not exclusively directed toward European and American history and letters, broadly defined.
  • A limited number of modest grants will also be available for projects related to the history of the book, book culture, printing history, and related programs.
  • Conferences designed to address these issues in collaborative ways and programs formulated to enhance or leverage similar activity by other institutions, consortia, or funding agencies will also be considered.

National Film Preservation Foundation

  • Basic Preservation Grants ($1,000 to $18,000) -Support laboratory work to preserve culturally and historically significant film materials
  • Avant-Garde Masters Grants ($5,000-$50,000) - Support laboratory work to preserve significant examples of America's avant-garde film heritage. By its very nature avant-garde film is hard to define. Avant-garde film is generally produced and distributed outside mainstream film channels. Often created by a single filmmaker or a small team, these films are intended as artistic expressions. They often experiment with the film medium in unique and personal ways
